Frustrated by the weather in midweek, seventeenth-placed Thackley welcome Handsworth Parramore (10th) to Dennyfield for tomorrow’s Toolstation NCEL Premier League fixture – and Manager, Pat McGuire knows that the Parras will be heading North looking for an away win, writes Colin Muncie.
Pat told the Bootiful Game, “after the disappointment of Tuesday night’s derby being postponed, we now turn to Saturday to keep the good feeling going. Handsworth will come here looking for all three points, and with us doing the same it should make for a decent game. I will be looking to see us kick on now, not rest on our laurels as we need to make use of our games in hand and push on up the table.”
Pat ‘s good wishes for tomorrow’s opposite number won’t kick in for tomorrow’s ninety minutes. “It is good to see another young manager being given a chance in this League,” he told us, “and I wish Jon Froggatt all the best – just not tomorrow!”
